Example

Here is an example of an actual attempt at liberal tricks:

This article, and many others on a similar line, are a sad demonstration of incipient mental illness. Andrew Schlafly appears to be an educated man - after all, he edited a legal journal which was later edited by Barack Obama (I assume that Andy's tenure wasn't a result of affirmative action in favour of the narrow minded and the bigoted) - yet his denunciations of 'liberalism' get ever wilder and more paranoid as his definition of that beknighted state become ever more encompassing.

The above example (by a non-American) attempts to smear a conservative by implying that he has a mental illness, reflecting liberal trick' #8 above. To someone unfamiliar with liberal tricks, this can be upsetting and intimidating. But once one realizes that this is a basic trick from the liberal playbook, its silliness and ineffectiveness becomes obvious. The liberal's foolish tactic is then revealed for what it really is.--Aschlafly 10:02, 24 February 2008 (EST)
